TB20 - Distributed I/O system
TB20 I/O modules have three components: a separate front connector, an electronic module, and a base module. A locking mechanism ensures that all modules can be quickly mounted and securely attached on DIN rails while guaranteeing a reliable electrical connection. Likewise, all modules can be easily and quickly removed for maintenance and/or system expansions.
Modules are delivered as complete assembled units (i.e., as a single assembly) and can be installed immediately. This makes keeping expenisve special parts in stock obsolete.
The system’s ergonomic design makes it easy to handle. Moreover, the space-saving compact dimensions behind it do not take away from the system components’ heavy-duty sturdiness and reliable electrical contacts for industrial applications, which are further complemented by an IP20 protection rating. An optimal systems engineering breadth can be achieved through the use of modules with up to 16 digital or 8 analog channels and digital mix in/out modules.
TB20 ToolBox makes it easy to methodically design TB20 systems. From selecting and positioning components and configuring their parameters to printing label strips and documentation for projects, every single step is combined into one single intuitive software package. Integrated terminal mapping, system width calculations, and current-carrying capacity monitoring all make it possible to quickly design systems without making any mistakes
The option of setting up TB20 I/O systems without a higher-level controller by directly reading and writing to inputs and outputs and configuring parameters for functionality testing purposes makes it easier to check the system’s wiring and entire design.
This way, you can rest assured knowing that your TB20 I/O system is ideally configured and ready for use before your machine is delivered.
With the TB20-ToolBox, the labeling, a symbol description, and the PLC address is defined, exported, and imported for each channel.
In combination with the TB20 CANopen coupler, the relevant SDOs can be seamlessly exported as an EDS file into the engineering tool of the CANopen master. Even the concrete configuration of a TB20 CANopen slave can be issued as a DCF file including node ID and Baud rate. With PDO mapping in combination with the TB20 CANopen coupler you also have the possibility to flexibly adapt the configuration for any application.
